Board of Directors

The KCCC Board of Directors, representing companies from throughout the Kansas City area, governs the Kansas City Corporate Challenge. These Board Members are not permitted to participate as athletes in the Corporate Challenge while serving on the Board but have the knowledge to provide valuable input from the companies’ perspective, making the Games the best they can be. In addition to the specialized area that they direct, each Board Member is a part of the overall decision-making process that governs the entire KCCC. Our thanks to these individuals, and to their companies for allowing them the time to be a part of our organization. The members of the 2023 KCCC Board of Directors are:
